Fenway Victory Gardens

  • 1200 Boylston Street Boston, MA, 02215 United States (map)

Situated in the heart of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood and part of Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace parks system, the Fenway Victory Gardens, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, spans 7 acres tended by a community of almost 500 gardeners, with a diversity of cultures, ages, abilities, and experience. During World War II, the City of Boston established “victory gardens” for citizens to grow vegetables and herbs. As the oldest and largest continuously operating WWII victory garden in the United States, the Fenway site is home not just to vegetable gardens, but to floral gardens, a community herb garden, an accessible garden, an apiary, a nursery, and a teaching garden. 
The Gardens will be offering kids games and self-guided garden tours to celebrate their 75th anniversary.
